Anyone undergoing mesothelioma treatments at a cancer center may face a difficult recovery when they return home. While a person’s home may be more comfortable than a hospital full of noisy medical equipment and busy doctors and nurses in the hallways, it helps to accommodate a home to the needs and well-being of the patient. That’s why supportive services and lifestyle changes can help alleviate pain and pave the way to recovery. Due to its long latency period of 20-50 years about 80% of mesothelioma patients are senior citizens. Many of whom end up needing in-home care. The Mesothelioma Center is a 100% free resource and service center for sufferers of mesothelioma.
